Most of us will know Meiji Chocolate from the chocolate bars you can buy in the convenience stores. Meiji have chocolate makers for a long time, but recently opened a chocolate cafe and started a range of boutique chocolates. They call the brand 56Chocolates.
The cafe is located at Shinbashi and serves 100% chocolate all day long.
Some of the flavors here are very original. Wasanbon is traditionally used in Japanese sweets not chocolate. Lemon salt, honey, black pepper, jasmine, rose hip, red chilli, soy milk, basil, lavender are just some of the more interesting ones to try.
What’s your favorite chocolate? Are you a Meiji chocolate fan?
